"I looked everywhere for a solid umbrella that would last. And I came up short every single time. I realized that I know what a good umbrella should be, so I could just make one. That’s how it all started. My guarantee: Weatherman won’t ever make anything short of an amazing umbrella."
– Founder Rick Reichmuth
Weatherman represents the convergence of technology, engineering and state-of-the-art design. The result? The best umbrella ever created.
Weatherman was conceived by nationally recognized meteorologist Rick Reichmuth. After years in the field covering severe weather events, Rick couldn’t find an umbrella that met his standards. So he decided to design it himself.
The result after three years of research, sketching, testing and more testing is an umbrella that stands up to extreme weather. The materials – from the hand-sewn panels to the fiberglass ribs – hold off 55-mph winds. Bluetooth technology tracks your Weatherman so you don't lose it, and the Weatherman app makes sure you don’t leave it behind.Our mission at Weatherman is to make an umbrella that lasts and becomes part of your daily routine. We want you to take it outside without worry or frustration.
We promise to make only amazing umbrellas. We stand behind our product, which is why we offer a lifetime guarantee. Click here to read about it.
